Women in Trades and Technology (WITT)

Is it time for you to start planning for the career of your future? Have you always wanted to work with tools but haven't had the opportunity? Are you interested in technology but haven't had a chance to really try it out? Are you interested in investigating a career in a trade or technology field?
 Want to unleash your inner inventor?  This workshop gives you and your daughter an opportunity to come up with your own creation and use the PicoCricket computers to bring it to life with sounds, lights, and/or movement.  The easy-to-use system gives a fun-filled opportunity to expand your computer skills and learn about computer programming.  The focus is on fun, creativity and opening doors, so don’t worry if you have never programmed before. No technical experience is required!

For mothers with daughters in grade 5 to 7.  

Register for the PicoCricket workshop by calling Crystal Stadnyk at 306-659-4863 or by email at crystal.stadnyk@siast.sk.ca.
